Just Come Back Tomorrow

Yes those are the words I heard today when I went by to collect a house payment, I called before I left the house and told her around 2 pm is when I would be in town and she said that was fine. I pull up and she tells me that its going to be a little later and she will call me, or just come back tomorrow. I told her " No" I am busy tomorrow, I will just come back in an hour. Sometimes the people who get a check each month and has probably their whole life thinks, just do it tomorrow. That is not how the real world works and not once has anyone considered that I have to buy gas for my car to get there. I had banking to do and I had to go renew my business license anyways, I still had time to "poke around" so I went to Publix and used coupons I had clipped. I got three 12 packs of angel soft toilet paper for $10.20 , another transaction got me 2 more bottle of cough syrup, two packs of 130 Paper plates and bananas for $4. I saved over $30 on this trip to restock. She still was not back so I went to walgreens and got my pen pal a few photos made so I can send, one of Tony with his deer, one of the red birds on the pine in the snow and a few of the snow photos. Finally she was back, she paid me and looked back at her pile of ice and said " I got a frozen pipe" I said I see that but did not mention that its most likely busted too. She will see by Sunday when its 50 degrees again. Today was tiring, I am taking off tomorrow and go back at it Friday. How was your day?

People in our apartments have a steep late fee for paying late. Maybe, this would help them pay on time.

What do those renters expect? It's like you're suppose to put your own life on hold and wait for them to call! How inconsiderate, on their part:(

My day has just started. It's the fourth day of January here and I went to the office early and that's because I had to drop by my son's school as he forgot his badminton at home. This is the firs time in so many months that I arrived in the office at 9am and I am mylotting now.

I went to bed with a migraine last night and woke up with a migraine today, so I pretty much slept all day until I felt okay enough to get up and attempt to function. It's supposed to rain in the next couple days, so maybe that's what's causing the migraines, as change of weather always triggers them for me.

There are people that do not care about others and then there are those that care. I bet if you waited till the next day that she would say come back again. It is sad how you have to stand your ground with people.

They are lucky that you come to collect rather than making them come and pay you. On time.

I can't imagine telling my landlord to come back later, well if I had a landlord lol That's why I hate being a landlord, I need an agent to collect for me.
